Delordinaire is a Paris-based architectural studio, with a satellite office in Montreal, Canada.
Presented project, titled High House, is a private chalet residence located in Quebec, Canada. The stark-white gabled structure is a great example of amazing interplay between interior and exterior, inviting people to gather in spaces immersed in nature. The construction is characterised by elevated stilt, what provides an extraordinary experience for the residents to be amongst snowy exterior.
"The stilt typology raises the house above the surrounding tree line giving it an uninterrupted view of the Mont Saint Anne from the lounge, as well as a striking overall aesthetic. It also allows sunshine to directly enter the house at all hours of the day. The clean, sharp lines and volumes are achieved through the use of white concrete panel cladding and corrugated steel roof panels. On a cloudy, snowy day, the house blends into the white landscape almost disappearing, and on summers day the minimal white structure cuts a clear form against the surrounding green hills,” explained the team of Delordinaire.
